I'm looking at a new job in London and planning to do the second half of my commute by bike as it will save about £1k a year.
I like in Southampton so would be catching a rush hour train with the bike most days. It doesn't look like Southampton is one of the stations with cycle restrictions in operation between 0730 and 1000
I've had a look at the train company's website and it looks like i'd need to book a spot, daily, to take my bike unless I buy a brompton or similar. The cost of folding bikes is putting me off, especially since most cost more than my 'proper' bike!
Does anyone on here make this trip with a bike regularly, if so...
- can you normally get your bike booked on or does space fill up quickly?
- should I just bite the bullet and buy a folding bike?
